Getting Media Player events

Hi Everyone,


I wanted to get the events generated by the Player (started when user clicking on a song in a BB device and not the one which is started programatically). I tried searching for some information regarding this. But couldnt find anything. can someone pls show some light regarding this.


We can use the PlayerListener for Player created programatically but how do I get the events from a system started Player. Kindly advice.


Many thanks,


New Developer
